A practitioner with extensive volunteer experience working with Addicts, Alcoholics, and the Disabled freely admits that:
"THE STATE OF MINNESOTA HAS NOT ADOPTED ANY EDUCATIONAL AND TRAINING STANDARDS FOR UNLICENSED COMPLEMENTARY AND ALTERNATIVE HEALTH CARE PRACTITIONERS. THIS STATEMENT OF CREDENTIALS IS FOR INFORMATION PURPOSES ONLY."
Under Minnesota law, an unlicensed complementary and alternative health care practitioner may not provide a medical diagnosis or recommend discontinuance of medically prescribed treatments. If a client desires a diagnosis from a licensed physician, chiropractor, or acupuncture practitioner, or services from a physician, chiropractor, nurse, osteopath, physical therapist, dietitian, nutritionist, acupuncture practitioner, athletic trainer, or any other type of health care provider, the client may seek such services at any time.
The methods of this practice are published to provide useful suggestions for the Disabled, Addicts, and Alcoholics, based upon the history of treatment for these conditions here. The United States also has one of the best First Response networks in the world, and you'll find additional resources for First Responders, including mobile apps at the Department of Homeland Security Website: Citizen Application Directory. If you encounter a persistent problem unresolved, try contacting: The Department of Homeland Security, or write IMID directly at: PTSSS. In case of an emergency, just call: 911.
It is hoped, that just as Modern Medicine is protected by Malpractice Legislation, that Responders and Complementary Health Care workers may also be defended by Trade Unions or Labor Unions such as those made famous during the Cultural Revolution. [i]
There are no fees for services to alcoholics or addicts in this capacity.
A brief discussion of consent for treatment may be found here: Consent. Clients may refuse to participate in any or all of these activities and/or seek help from other Local Agencies at anytime. The right to refuse treatment, or to write writing your own treatment plan are described here as a rational approach to 'hopeless conditions', and serve to illustrate what our fundamental Health Care problems are in the United States today.
